Thanks Warren, you have just been so encouraging and a great colleague to help me out. The numbers just looked funny standing on the page. I am taking yours, James’ and the website’s advice, and writing all the numbers out. Only ones I am keeping in numeral form are 60 MPH, 1000 miles, 4500 miles.

Only questionable one left is, four hundred and ninety-nine. Is that correct?

Hi, Mary. I would eliminate the “and”: four hundred ninety-nine. But I’m not one hundred percent sure about it. :emoticon:
